Applying Thermal Paste

For a video on the subject, please check out the following video:

Before you can apply a new layer of thermal paste to a CPU or GPU, you will have to remove the old layer. This is best done by using a Q-tip with isopropyl alcohol. Once the old layer has been completely removed, you can then apply a new layer. Make sure that you apply the paste thoroughly across the entire surface. It does not need to be a very thick layer, but it must cover every inch. After that, simply put the unit back together again, making sure that you do not accidentally smudge the new thermal paste layer with your fingers or any part of the console.
